Diary
2014-2018
Montreal

In this series I use a diaristic format to present a narrative of my chosen queer family in order to challenge the normative family models. My project offers an intimate view on the Montreal LGBTQIA+ communities. In my work, I employ humour, playfulness and body-positivity as powerful modes of healing and creating queer kinship. I use the vernacular photographic style and the 90s snapshot aesthetic to evoke the nostalgic feel of family archives and home videos. My photographs are mainly constructed using point-and-shoot 35mm cameras and film. I use a collaborative approach in order to create non-hierarchical spaces between my subjects, myself, and my images.
